My thoughts exactly. All the Danes seemed to be enamored by her, and I was like, she looks like she hasn't bathed in years. But it must have been her powers that drew them to her. I was with Finan and baby monk, just kill her already!
I was really annoyed to see Haesten dining with King Alfred in the beginning. If Alfred had known he had tried to rape his daughter, I wonder if he would have still made an alliance with him. I can't remember if Haesten survived the battle at the end, but he's outworn his welcome. If it wasn't for him, maybe Erik and Aethelflaed would be living happily ever after! Sorry, I'm still not over Erik's death, but at least he gave Aethelflaed a little blonde-haired girl. :)
